Gerald Kirkpatrick | Visionary and Team Leader
Gerald Kirkpatrick, AKA Gerry is the man with the plan. With 12 years in the industry under his belt Gerry specialises in getting it started, getting side-tracked and getting back to it. He gets a kick from Kommand by creating a nimble team that will take Kommand to the top of the tree and challenge the naysayers. He loves our industry for the evolution in technology and techniques year on year. He blows off steam indulging in good food, a good drop and adventures with his family.
Nathan Burton | Technical Operations
Our field guru Nathan “Bird” Burton brings nearly 20 years of fixing stuff to the table. He loves working with the great people at Kommand and doing what he does best, keeping you on the job. His favourite thing is watching a skilled grader operator precisely laying gravel and delivering results under pressure. When the hi vis comes off, you can find “Bird” Netflix binging with a Bundy under his wing.
Aaron Coleman | Business Operations
Aaron Coleman, affectionately and imaginatively known as “Ranga” uses his decade of acquired skill keeping the parts flowing out the door. A “Jack of All”, Ranga organises hire stock and spares, operations, and helps Rose keep Gerry pointed in the right direction. Kommand gives him a team of likeminded, hardworking individuals to have a laugh with. He loves the new challenges he gets to face each day. At home Ranga hits the backyard to exercise his green thumb. He also makes a killer apple pie and enjoys fine whiskey.
Cameron Crowden | Field Application Engineer
“Cam” Crowden is our newest addition to the crowd. An experienced machine operator specialising in excavators, he’s now turning his hand to GPS. He loves the supportive team atmosphere and learning opportunities working at Kommand afford him. He loves constantly absorbing knowledge and has a passion for working on yellow iron. When he’s off the clock, Cam loves nothing more than to bundle his kids in the car and hit the road for a relaxing drive.
Roseanne Kirkpatrick | Finance Manager
Roseanne Kirkpatrick, or “Rose” to the team keeps the doors open. 13 years of mustering cats and make sure the finances are kept on the straight and narrow make Rose the lynchpin of the team. She’s the smiling assassin of accounting. She loves being part of a tight team in an evolving industry. Her down time indulgences mirror Gerry, with the important addition of Ugg boots.
